Roy Williams is going through some not-so-fun stuff, so we’ll avoid laughing too hard at the ridiculous circumstances that surround a lawsuit filed by the Dallas Cowboys receiver earlier today.

See, it seems Williams proposed to former Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels. But instead of getting down on one knee the old-fashioned way, Williams sent Daniels a recorded proposal and a $76,000 ringĀ in the mail, alongside cash for school and dental bills and a baseball for Daniels’ brother.

The proposal was turned down, but Daniels kept the ring. And that’s where things get real painful for poor Roy, who has been forced to sue to get it back, making every detail of this embarrassing ordeal public.

The story has a quasi-happy ending: Daniels is returning the ring to dodge the lawsuit. But the damage to Williams’ reputation has already been done.
